Personality and Traits

Because of his rather deadpan personality, Tucker is often used for comic relief. Despite this, Tucker is very serious about the work he does with Specs and Elise. He takes pride in building the equipment that the Spectral Sightings team uses, and even sold copies of his inventions on Craigslist at some point. According to the script for Insidious: Chapter 2, he has a strong dislike for government surveillance and frequently takes measures to avoid it. Despite his technological brilliance and passion for his work, Tucker is shown to be somewhat unprofessional as he is often seen eating when on the job. It is also revealed that he is rather nosy as he's willing to enter private rooms in Elise's house without a second thought.
